In February, 2016, a fisherman found a yacht adrift off the
coast of the Philippines. When he boarded the seemingly abandoned yacht, he
came across a grim scene: the mummified remains of a man slumped over in his
chair. Using documents found on board, they identified the man as 59-year-old
Manfred Fritz Bajorat from Germany. While it appeared that he had been dead for a prolonged
period of time, his autopsy revealed that he had only been dead for a week. Due
to the salt air and dry wind, mummification was advanced. While his cause of
death was never determined, it was believed he had suffered a heart attack. He
had been travelling the world on his yacht, Sayo, for the past twenty years.

Black cats are very often overlooked at shelters because they’re deemed as boring or bad luck. Nevertheless, this didn’t bother David when he went to adopt Scrappy - a black cat. After a few years, David noticed that Scrappy was slowly changing colour and developing patches of white throughout his fur. As it so turned out, Scrappy had a skin condition called vitiligo in which white patches appear on the skin of humans or on the fur of animals.
